Shannon Gabriel hit with ICC charge

The International Cricket Council today charged West Indies fast bowler Shannon Gabriel with a breach of its code of conduct over an incident between Gabriel and England captain Joe Root.

Towards the end of play on the third day of the third and final Wisden Test match in St Lucia, Root was picked up by the stump mic saying to Gabriel: "Don't use it as an insult … there is nothing wrong with being gay."
